D-Link gets a "D" for network connection and UX

Ward Evans, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this based on reviews and my self confidence as a reasonably tech-savvy individual. Boy did it take me down a peg. Followed the Wi-Fi instructions to the letter. Nada. Plugged it directly into the router via ethernet. Nada.

Faulty and I couldn't get it to set up properly

Nina, Amazon
30 March 2016
  • Summary: Faulty. I bought this from Target, yet came here to warn of the lack of troubleshooting. I was excited to watch my home while at work, and this was a great price for a good looking design. However, in set-up the instructions were vague and told me to follow the app, which was even less intuitive.

Decent Camera, but not worth the MSRP.

MICHAEL T., Newegg
16 February 2015
  • Summary: This camera is decent with the features it comes with, BUT I personally would not pay the retail price this camera commands. On paper, it looks like a great camera, but once you actually set it up and start using it, you see all the shortcomings. The microphone's quality isn't good at all.
  • Pros: - Limited night vision capability. - Connection to network via wifi or ethernet. - Can store video over network to a network drive or to a microSD card.
  • Cons: - Resolution is fairly low. - The low resolution + low night vision range make for pretty bad night / low-light image. - It's not PoE capable - If you set it to store video on the microSD card and whoever you're filming sees the camera, they can simply take the card out of the camera. - Having se...
